We found the restaurant by recommendations from friends who lived in Amsterdam. The food delicious and fresh, the wait staff were very friendly even with our tired and fussy 4 year old. It was an excellent lunch as we hid indoors from the rain.

After reading all the trip advisor reviews, Gartine was on my to do list when I came to Amsterdam, and I'm so very glad it was! I risked not booking, and they thankfully managed to squeeze us in. I had the pancakes with maple syrup and nuts and my partner had the French toast. We both thoroughly enjoyed it! Its... More

We stumbled across this little place completely by accident on our last day, and boy do I wish we'd found it earlier! Wonderful decor, very small however so I would recommend booking, even though we lucked out and got a table on the spot. The owners are simply lovely, so nice and made lots of time for us even though... More

My husband and I went to Gartine for breakfast when we first arrived into Amsterdam, not really knowing our bearings or where we were - what a little treasure, tucked away down a lovely little street. Inside, the decor is wonderful and there is such a nice, welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious, great coffee and really accommodating staff. All in... More

Such a lovely cafe tucked away in a side street. Had a beautifully made fresh breakfast on my first day in Amsterdam. Really lovely almost tea room mixed with funky cafe feel to it, a bit pokey but worth the wait for a table. If you like fresh clean food this is the place for you and reasonably priced too.

We were squeezed in for lunch on a Friday, but had to be out of our seat in 45 mins which limited our choices. However the food here is great, the flavours have been well thought through and the food is locally sourced. We just had a light lunch, but both loved it. The food was so fresh and I... More

Cute and cosy restaurant with a divers menu of salty dishes for lunch. I came in for a more "tea time" purpose and was just disappointed that there was a very limited choice in regards to the cakes (no scones). Nonetheless the tea was delicious as was the cake I had !

We just happened to be lucky and got a table immediately. We had raisin bread and French cinnamon toast. Staff very pleasant and friendly with speedy service. All served with nice cups and saucers and teapots. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Very good but got to agree with last comment - it's just a cup of tea and toast!

Don't get me wrong. It was pleasant enough. I had booked and people were being turned away. But it was a cup of tea/coffee, toast and cold meat, cheese and jam. Not sophisticated cooking or a real taste of Amsterdam/Holland. The staff were pleasant and service fine. The table next to the window was free and so I asked if... More

Gartine is very small. Be sure to book in advance. Organic ingredients, most of them grown in their own vegetable garden, Gluten free and/or sourdough bread, 'animal friendly' eggs and meat. Go here on a sunny day and sit in the garden. Try the classic High Tea. Don't forget the cakes.
